What a great blog!!!

Hope that ...
„you will step out of the pages of the blinking blind of the book,
And gaze astaunded at the endless space of the cosmic Void.“
Sun Ra

So let's hear carefully, because...
„I am not of this planet.
I am another order of being.
I can tell you things you won’t believe.“
Sun Ra, The Aim Of My Compositions

I love this record! It's the second album of Sun Ra i bought after 'Space is the place' and still one of my favourite. I was so surprise after i listen to it when i see the date! Incredible! Sun Ra was so far away from the music of his time, he was at the top of the avangarde for Saturn
